en Limba Engleză CD-Audio – 06 Sep 2016
The path to fulfillment, whether at work or at home, is almost never a straight line. Ask anyone who has achieved their biggest goals or who thrives in their relationships, and you ll hear stories of many unexpected detours along the way. What separates those who rise to these challenges and those who get derailed? The answer is agility emotional agility.
Emotional agility is a four-step approach that allows us to navigate life s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind. In her more than twenty years of research, Susan David has found that no matter how intelligent, resilient, or creative people are, when they ignore how situations or interactions make them feel, they miss opportunities to gain insight, getting hooked by thoughts, emotions, and habits that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Emotionally agile people experience the same stresses and setbacks as anyone else, but they know how to adapt, aligning their actions with their values and making small changes that lead to a life of growth.
Drawing on her extensive professional research, her international consulting work, and her own experiences growing up in Apartheid-era South Africa and losing her father at a young age, David shows how anyone can become more emotionally agile and thrive in an uncertain world. Written with authority, wit, and empathy, "Emotional Agility" will help you live your most successful life, whoever you are and whatever you face.

"I'm not spending enough time with my kids." "This work presentation is going to be a disaster." "Why is my house always such a mess?"
We all have niggling doubts and worries of this kind: they are an inevitable party of a busy modern lifestyle. But many of us magnify these subjective negative thoughts into unshakeable facts. We feel that, far from being in control of our emotions, our emotions are entirely in control of us.
Over her career as a psychologist and consultant, Susan David has found that the happiest people have exactly the same stresses and setbacks as anyone else. The difference is that they have learned to unhook themselves from unhelpful patterns in thought and behaviour. They are emotionally agile.
Drawing on more than twenty years of academic and professional experience, Susan David has pioneered a new way of helping us to make peace with ourselves. Emotional Agility will help you to positively connect with your emotions, act according to your deepest values, and flourish.
